Justin was delighted to have the opportunity to meet constituents as part of the ‘Speak Up for Climate’ lobby in London.
Nine thousand people from across the UK descended on Westminster as part of the biggest ever lobby on climate change. People from every walk of life, from anglers to bee keepers, and surfers to doctors, met their MPs to tell them about how what they love is at risk from the threat of climate change.
I was delighted to have a chance to speak about this global problem to Eileen, Vincent and Tim who live in my constituency and hear their views on what should be done to make a better future for us all; I am very grateful to them for taking the trouble to come along.
“We discussed the many things that they, and many other people, love which are at threat from climate change and I will do all I can in Parliament to speak up for what is important. Things such as warm homes for all; clean, safe power; ensuring people and nature are protected and the poorest in the world who are most affected by climate change are helped. We must all ask ourselves as well, whether we are doing enough in our own lives to combat climate change.
“In this crucial year for climate change, I hope that we’ll see real progress towards a global climate change deal and I will do all I can to make that happen.”
